Sending to machine/getting started

Postby Steve625 » Mon Nov 05, 2018 8:24 pm

I am a complete newbie and need some help in figuring out how to send a design to my X-Carve to get it machined/carved. I have created the toolpaths and generated a summary and have saved the toolpaths in X-Carve format but can't open the box that says "send to machine". What am I doing wrong - I need some help! Thanks to all who have pity on me... :( :(

The option to send directly to machine is dependant on the control software for your CNC, if it is greyed out the chances are your control software either doesn't have that option or there is a setting in the control software that needs changed.
Save to a USB stick & them move the stick to control comp[uter :lol: :lol:
